Happy (half) birthday to our wee Sandy… and big love for all the littlest ones ❤️

Our little Sandy hamster turned 2 and a half on Friday, and we decided to make a proper little fuss of him and give him a wee day of celebration! I think it’s quite hard to judge but have seen some hamster to human years “conversions” showing around 2 and a half creeping up toContinue reading “Happy (half) birthday to our wee Sandy… and big love for all the littlest ones ❤️”

Summer holidaying…. ☀️

We’re a few weeks into our summer holidays here, and have been enjoying them so much.

Back then, home was a tiny one-bedroomed cottage, just the two of us and our beloved pets making up our family unit inContinue reading “Thoughts on Home and Family 💞”

Last month we had Charmer turning 25 years old, and this week coming our wee Sandy hamster turns 26 months…. making both of them actually very similar in age when calculated in “human years”… two distinguished gentlemen in their 70s!

Last night of the holidays

It’s the last night of the Easter holidays, and it’s been a really lovely couple of weeks here in our little corner of the world. Weather wise it couldn’t have been more mixed, with whipping winds, days of glorious sunshine broken up by a string of unexpected April snow showers – a December-worthy blizzard swirlingContinue reading “Last night of the holidays”
